The context of every situation changes from scene-to-scene, moment to moment.

Handcuff a suspect to a pole and stand there with him until the cops arrive and you're a hero! Leave a suspect handcuffed to a pole and then step around the corner to take a leak and you are a kidnapper.

Intent and context are everything to legal eagles. It's so often not what is done which determines if it was legal, but HOW and WHEN it was done.
